Bachan Woman Shelter
We have been supporting underprivileged women and their children since 2005. These ladies either stay with us in the shelter or we support them while they stay with their families.
Women, Youth & Untouchable tribes
We have started village and handicraft programs in order to empower the villagers. Artisans are also involved in our travel program plus we have a little shop with their products. Village ladies are included in making handmade natural organic soaps which provides a livelihood for them. Our home stay and travel projects are looked after by the local women who work as home stay care takers, guides, cooks, teachers, and cooking instructors.
We organize Clean expeditions regularly in various trekking routes, arranging garbage-bins and educate the locals about the waste management.
We are supporting a wonderful "plant the trees" project lead by the retired army men by donating our land to them so that they could grow the seedlings to than plant them all over Himalayas to stop the landslides and to protect our environment. This project is also planting special plants in river the Ganga to clean the river in natural way, the project is called Namami Gangai Yojana project is an ambitious Union Government Project which integrates the efforts to clean and protect the Ganga river in a comprehensive manner.
We support local schools and students so that they can have a decent education especially girls since girls are often pulled out of the school once they start reading and writing to help with house chores. Plus advice and support youth on their career decisions. Part of our profit goes into providing furniture, clothes, educational toys and school necessities for the children.
